Granola, Yogurt & Fresh Fruit Parfaits


Honey Vanilla Yogurt, Fresh Fruit
& Granola Parfait
*******
Win Jardine served this at our wedding shower, which she hosted for Stan and me in 1985.
Great for brunch, or a special weekend breakfast.  We use “Greek God’s” Honey Yogurt rather than making our own.

Win’s Brunch Menu:
Sticky Orange Rolls
Bloody Mary (without alcohol)
Fresh Fruit Salad with Honey Vanilla Yogurt and Granola
Marmalade Butter
Cheese and Sausage Strata
Honey Vanilla Yogurt:
2 C plain yogurt, preferably Greek yogurt
2 TBL good honey
½ tsp pure vanilla extract
Seeds scraped from 1/2 vanilla bean, optional
*
Granola, store bought or homemade
*
Fruit Salad (seasonal)

Summer Fruit Salad:
 1/2 orange, juiced
1 banana, sliced
***
½  pint fresh blueberries
½  pint fresh raspberries
1 pint organic fresh strawberries, hulled and cut in half
1 bunch seedless green grapes, halved

OR

Winter Fruit Salad:
Spiced Plum compote
Any stone fruits, stewed (plums, peaches)

1.     Combine the yogurt, honey, vanilla extract, and vanilla bean seeds in a bowl and set aside.
2.     Combine the orange juice and banana slices in a separate bowl.
3.     Add the berries and grapes and gently mix the fruit mixture together.
4.     Make parfaits: layer the fruit into serving glasses and top with the yogurt and granola (optional), or if it is a buffet, set out in large serving bowls and small cups and let people serve themselves.
